33s or 35s on 22x12s

Hey everybody. Had a 2000 f250 powerstroke for about a year now. Time to get some wheels. I like the 22x12 wheels. I was just wondering if 33s or 35s on 22 inch wheels will ride like a log wagon.
Also if they will give me any trouble with towing around an 8k lb trailer on a bumper hitch from time to time.

Also what lift would be needed? 2.5 inch leveling or 4 inch lift?

I have 18x12's with 33x15.50's on my 2003 with a 4" lift and they required trimming to clear. So I'd say with 35's either keep the tire narrow (like a 12.50) and a 4" lift would work or go with a 6" lift just to be safe. Every truck is different really.

I don't think I'd want to go more that 20's with 35's. But I think you'd need a 4" lift to clear 35's and with the right backspacing.

Personally, I like 18's with 35's and 20's not until you get to 37's. Regardless of ride and towing, too big of wheels just doesn't look good.

imo perfect wheel/tire combos go 33/16 35/18 37/20 and 40/22
have you ever seen a 33 on a 22in wheel? looks like a lo-pro car tire

as for lift, you can get 35s with a 3in leveling kit and tires will barely rub, 4inch your good and 6in for 37s, anything over 14in wide tires they will rub on the leaf springs up front

how about the 20x12 wheels with 35s. would a 3 inch leveling kit still do it with some rubbing?

You all are right. 22 would look like a low pro car tire
